It’s an incurable disease (as far as I know). Much to the dismay of family and friends, even when we’re on holiday we can’t switch off!
Be it a stylish postcard from a bar, a thoughtful logo on a coffee cup or the walls of a fish and fresh food market adorned in beautiful typography – If something’s nicely done, out comes the camera. I realise to Joe public, I probably look like a bloody idiot, but then again, if I can get even a little bit of pleasure from looking at a wall with some words on, who’s the winner?
I guess the comforting thing is, I know I’m not alone. Designers, architects and photographers worldwide suffer from this malady (to name a few.) and we’ve all got our little books or that folder on the desktop of our shiny macs full of the holiday snaps that include no family, no friends and no landmarks or tourist attractions.
Yes, maybe it is a bit strange, maybe we’re all mad, but then again, I think I speak for many when I say, I’m not looking for a cure!
